The Kansas Bar Association website is the best starting point if you are trying to file a grievance. But do not go it alone, remember to buy Dispute It – A Layman’s Guide on How to Get an Attorney Refund & File a Bar Grievance, to significantly increase your chances with Kansas State Bar complaints.
Rules of Professional Conduct
The Kansas Rules of Professional Conduct will help you to understand where possible attorney grievance violations have occurred with your lawyer.
Rules for Lawyer Disciplinary Enforcement:
The Kansas Disciplinary Procedural Rules provides the guidelines governing the discipline of attorneys and offers the most comprehensive explanation around the rules, process, and sanctions.
Disciplinary Process Flowchart:
The Kansas Disciplinary Process Flowchart is perhaps the most helpful document for the layman since it provides a visual representation of each step and the decision gates when filing Kansas State Bar complaints against attorneys.
Local Bar Offices & Websites
I would recommend you contacting your local bar office to learn more about the fee dispute program offerings for Kansas.
Lawyer Disciplinary Agency:
After a cursory overview of the rules, contact the Lawyer Disciplinary Agency office and speak to a representative about your possible violations and the grievance process. This agency is the division that handles Kansas State Bar complaints against attorneys.
